My department (Design and User Experience) is interested in establishing more standard job titles and is interested in hearing from the community. Currently we maintain three roles within the department with the following tiles and responsibilities:
UX Analyst: Performs user interviews, stakeholder interviews, UX research, creates sketches, site maps and wireframes for client projects primarily using AXURE or similar software.
UX Engineer: Performs user interviews, stakeholder interviews, UX research, creates sketches, site maps, wireframes and prototypes for client projects primarily using HTML and CSS.
Interactive Designer: Assists with user research and wireframes, primary focus on creating branding deliverables, style tiles, mockups and final designs using Photoshop.
As you can see there is a lot of overlap among the positions and we want our choice in titles to reflect that ideally. We also want our titles to more accurately reflect the responsibilities within each position. If an employee were to leave my company, we would still want their experience and title to reflect the work they have done and hopefully bolster their job search. Any thoughts on possible titles to use? Does your company have a similar infrastructure, what titles do you use? Thanks for commenting.
